Font/Display Issues

Comments

  • Even though the person said that it works fine in Windows 10....nope...not here. I have tried all the fixes online...nothing worked...so annoyed, not only did my Budget get messed up with the R20.15 update, but now I cannot read the menu it is so small...and ...using LARGER FONTS is just ridiculous.
    Programmers need to do it properly, this has been going on long enough.
  • I have all my resolutions set as suggested above. Menu font size is ridiculously small....I remember that there was a "work around" on a previous update, but can't find it for R20.15...totally annoyed. "Large Fonts" is way too big since it truncates the columns.
    Why should I pay for something that I am constantly fixing. I have been a user for over 25 years and only in the past 5 years I feel like I am chasing my tail on every update.
    Any suggestions on fixing the menu font size, I am running Windows 10 on a high def monitor.

    Font size problems? Display issues? (Windows)

    If you are using a version of Quicken at the Quicken 2019 US R 19.44 patch level or newer and you have previously made the following Compatibility change, please undo the change. 

    Users of older Quicken versions please try the following:

    • Close Quicken !!! (This process won't work while Quicken is running!)
    • Check the Compatibility tab settings in your Quicken Desktop program icon:
    • In the Windows Start Menu right-click the Quicken icon. Select "Open File Location". This brings up a Windows File Explorer window. Right-click the highlighted Quicken shortcut line item.
      or
    • Go to the traditional Windows Desktop and right-click the Quicken program icon.
    • Now click Properties.
    • Select the Compatibility tab.
    • Uncheck all settings.
    • Windows 7, 8.1: Check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings". 
      Windows 10:  Check "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:" and select "Application"  (also try the other available options!)
    • Be sure to uncheck the "Run this program in compatibility mode for [older Windows version]" setting.
    • Click the "Change settings for all users" button.
    • Click Apply and exit.
    • Now start Quicken and see if that makes a difference.

    Some additional tuning suggestions:

    • Try this workaround for 4k monitors
      https://www.quicken.com/support/work-around-display-issues-high-resolution-monitors
    • Unless absolutely required, try not to use "View / Use large fonts"
    • Try setting the bank account registers to use a different font style or size: go to Edit / Preferences / Register, click the Fonts button and try different fonts.
    • Try adjusting the bank account registers' row height: go to Edit / Preferences / Register, choose among the available Row Height choices: Compact, Comfortable or Standard
    • If all else fails, try changing Windows Control Panel / Display options for "Make text and other items … smaller or larger" to use a different scaling level.

    Yup, me too. R20.15 running on XPS 13 (3200x1800) with 2 x 4K monitors - scaled at 200%. Tried every suggested fix with no joy. My menu is tiny and cut in half - and a few dialog boxes are painfully small. Ugh. 3 years with no fix!
